135 (East Anglian)(Herts Yeo) Field Regiment RA(TA) The 135 (East Anglian) (Herts Yeo) Field Regiment RA was formed in September 1939 it consisted of three batteries, the; 344 (Hitchin) Battery 336 (Northampton) Battery 499 Battery The Regiment remained in the United Kingdom until 1941 Hi My grandfather, Albert Cecil Beadle was in the 344 battery as above and by researching (plus his own recollection) confirmed he was based in Wymondham, Norfolk from November 1939. I have also sinced discovered that it was a severe winter at the end of 1939 into 1940 and my grandfather was snowed in somewhere that led to him being "as thin as a rake" and having to spend a year in hospital, with pneumonia. He was discharged from the army in April 1940, being physically unfit. My question is in what circumstances could a group of soldier be snowed in to the extent of severe starvation in the area of Wymondham, as surely even in the worst snow a village, town would have been within walking distant, especially if you were running low on supplies you would attempt to get to civilisation. He also could not speak of what had happened to his death. Is there anywhere I could find hospital records, I think he said he was in Colchester and there was military hospital there, that might give answers? Thank you.
